When South Africa wanted to name their “Cricketer of the Century” at the end of 1999, they produced a 10 man short list. Only 3 of them were not white. 2 of the 3 (Basil D’Oliveira and Frank Roro) are already safely ensconced in my top order. I’m going to add the third, ERIC PETERSEN, to my bowling attack because a quota is no cause for compromise and I want everyone unequivocally worth their place.

On the SACBOC Tour of Kenya in 1958/59 (Captained by D’Oliveira) in 3 “Tests” Petersen took 21 wickets at 8.33.

Also a good lower order batsman, Petersen would generally open as a genuine fast bowler, before dialing back to an accurate swinging medium fast and then a big-spinning medium pace off-break bowler. He was considered virtually “unplayable” on the matting wickets of the coloured leagues of the time.

Herbie Taylor for me please. A player who goes under the radar unfortunately, but has a very fine record on poor wickets of his time in clearly the weakest team of those days.

:saf: :bwl: Hugh Tayfield

In a draft where there are only a few good genuine spin options to pick from, due to the nature of pitches in SA which support pace more than spin, I am amazed that I got :bwl: Hugh Tayfield still available.

The right arm off-spinner played between the years 1949 and 1960 and is often regarded as not only South Africa's greatest ever spin bowler, but also one of the greatest off-spinners to have ever played Test cricket.
